Perspectives on Land Acknowledgements - An Open Discussion

Fri., Feb. 2, 2024 10:00 a.m. - Fri., Feb. 2, 2024 11:00 a.m.

Location: Global Learning Centre (CW 115) / Zoom

The University of Regina is situated on Treaty 4 lands, with a presence in Treaty 6. These are the territories of the nêhiyawak (nay-hi-yuh-wuk, Cree), Anihšināpēk (uh-nish-i-naa-payk, Saulteaux), Dakota, Lakota, Nakoda, and the homeland of the Métis/Michif Nation. Today, these lands continue to be the shared territory of many diverse peoples. The nêhiyawak originally referred to Regina as oskana kā-asastēki (os-kuh-nuh-kaa-us-us-tay-kih), Cree for “the place where bones are piled up." This is why Regina's nickname is "Pile O'Bones" and is the origin of the name Wascana Park, where the University’s Regina main campus is located. (
Land acknowledgements have become staples across Canada for organizations, schools, and businesses to create awareness of the Indigenous territories they are situated on. This session will offer a safe space for open discussion about what territorial acknowledgements are and what they signify, while presenting a platform to share perspectives.
Hosted and presented by the Global Learning Centre (GLC).
